Musa Barrow: I’m always happy to play for my country

Wednesday, September 04, 2019

Atalanta striker, Musa Barrow said he always feels happy and proud to come and represent his country whenever he is invited.

Speaking to sports journalists shortly after his arrival at the Banjul International Airport on Monday, ahead of the Scorpions 2020 World Cup qualifier against Angola this Friday, the 20-year-old player said he is hopeful that they will collect the maximum point in the hands of the Palancas Negras on Friday.

Barrow, who scored the lone goal during Gambia’s win against Morocco on 12 June, called on his teammates to maintain the form that they have during their two-international test matches against Guinea and Morocco.

According to him, the only focus they have is to  go forward and achieve their objectives of qualifying the country at the tournament.

Barrow scored four goals in six matches for Atalanta in last season’s Europa League. He said a player should always be proud to represent his country. “It’s always shameful to go back to your club when your other teammates are presenting their country in an international tournament,” he said.

 He called on Gambian fans to fill the stadium on Friday to support the team as they aim to collect the maximum point.
